okay, I've read hundreds of pages...

Don't start the OMGs because I'm asking about oil...I've searched hundreds of pages in this thread and didn't find my answer, so....

Can you briefly describe an oil change procedure for a 2006 and what oil to run and how much oil it takes?

I appreciate all good information, since I'm learning about this bike and I'll even laugh at a few smart ass comments...

Two drain plugs on the sump come out (one is a recessed hex.)
Remove left side bag filter & clean.
You can take out the right side bag filter if you have extra time, but it takes removing the case cover.
Remove filter cover, extract filter & replace.
Button it all back up and put in 10W60 or a similar weight class oil. I use Motorex. 2.1 quarts when replacing the filter.

I highly recommend it, side cover gasket is reusable.

And if you do pull off the right side clutch cover to check that "bag" filter (just 2 metal mesh tubes screens, one inside the other), be sure to watch for the proper alignment of the oil pump shaft notch putting the cover back on. The gasket is reusable. Do not over tighten those bolts, the o-rings and gaskets work well enough. The paper oil filter cover on the front right side has 3 bolts and has a spring between the cover and filter top. Don't forget to put it back in after it pops out and rolls away.

It does not feel that the bike is stalling out, it just shuts off as if I turned off the ignition.

Does anybody have any clue of what this could be?

Thanks, Pete
probably your starter wire has a poor connection
I have short circuit-ed the connection

Right side is the single filter I posted a pic of, left side has the double screens...you nailed the rest of that stuff.

Here's my newly acquired Husky!
A '98 Te610, Left hand kick only, right drive...First registered in 2007, with only 600km on it. Excel rims with Talon hubs.

It's a lovely bit of kit, I am hoping to fit the enduro rims to it, but I am having trouble with spacers on the rear?

Anyway, here she is....

For those of you running a Giant Loop Fandango or Diablo tankbag, where did you attach it to on the left-hand side? I had it running over the top of the exhaust heat shield and down to my DirtBagz bracket. Seemed to work well for about 500 miles, but today the strap running over the head shield melted. I'm not seeing another good location to attach it, unless I ran it all the way down to the left lootpeg, which seems weird...

I used the passenger peg brackets to mount the bag. I also used one of their heat shields.

Power or lack there of

I put new sprockets on and went +2 in the rear. Still this thing is a big slouch. '06 TE610.
Last night I triied and could not get it about 90mph in about 1mile run.


I haven't looked in the carb, but assume it to be stock jetting.

Sounds like something's just not right? These bike are a bit heavy, but slow they aren't. They will pull top speed about a fast as you can shift them.
